IRISH MOVIE NIGHT/PITCH-IN AT KIM'S-"ONC­E" AND "SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS"

Hey everyone, let's celebrate St. Patrick's day a little early by watching "Once" and "Seven Psychopaths" at Kim's.  This will also be a pitch in so please note what you will be bringing, either when you RSVP or in the comments section.  Irish dishes are encouraged, but not necessary.  Also there MAY be a drawing and a prize for the folks who come dressed up in the spirit of the holiday.

"Once" (2007) is written and directed by John Carney and stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.  When a brokenhearted street musician (Hansard) clicks with a beautiful and feisty keyboardist (Irglova), the unlikely couple decide that they have nothing-and everything-to lose. Over the course of one electric week, the duo writes, performs and records an incredible cycle of songs every bit at spontaneous and soulful as their improbable romance.

"Seven Psychopaths" (2012) is from the Oscar nominated writer/director of "In Bruges", Martin McDonagh.  The star-studded cast includes Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrielson, and Christopher Walken.  Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay "Seven psychopaths".  His best friend Billy (Rockwell) is an unemployed actor, and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. Hans (Walken) is Billy's partner in crime, and Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychotic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen.  This film is violent and darkly comedic, and in my opinion features some of the bast acting of 2012.

Kim lives in the Woodruff Place area near downtown Indianapolis.  Her cell is[masked] if you need directions.  1721 Cross Drive is at the SE corner of Cross Dr & West Drive.  It's a Brick 1-story apartment with a white wicker sofa on the porch.  You can park on either West Drive or Cross Drive.  Please remember to bring a drink or a snack to share.  Irish themed foods are encouraged, but not necessary.  Hope to see you there!

    Kim, your home is just so cozy and charming! Thanks for hostessing - I left just in time - after I got home I sneezed for about an hour - that would NOT have been a welcome addition to the soundtrack of the second feature!

      February 10, 2013

    • Kim

      Maybe each of the shrimp could wear a little tweed cap on their heads, to look like Irish shrimp...
